Meanwhile it’s common, that the splines of the VC housing are a weak point and often worn out. Effects of worn splines are not serious in the first place (except […]
As we mentioned in the last section of this blog article already, a working viscous coupling will always relieve the gear box from a certain amount of load – even […]
Answer: Totally equal, you should better pay attention to other things…
The other day I could examine another tiny part about the “oil-sucking” issue. My understanding is, that it’s a design failure, where the extrem high thermal expansion of the silicon […]
Anybody who already opened an old VC knows what I mean – the offensive smell of the deep black silicone fluid. But why does it stink so badly?
After having tested a so called baking oven VC months ago, I decided to test another one due to verification resasons. I got the baking oven VC from a german […]
In the last weeks I got a few inquiries regarding due to the activation-time of a viscous-coupling. Typical questions looked like these: How fast activates a working VC? My VC […]
After improving the Viscous-Coupling of the T3-Synro with a special valve and solving the oil-sucking-problem I was thinking about how to make our VC even better.
In order to test the accuracy of the baking oven method for overhauling viscous couplings, I ran an extensive test session on one of these units on the test rig. […]
